All of us want the Apple Watch Edition worth more than $10,000, but let’s face it – for most of us its a far-fetched dream. However, in the era of cheap knock-offs, we can get something eerily similar for 1/3rd the price. In the ultimate DIY video of sorts, YouTuber Casey Neistat has come up with a simple hack that potentially lets you save over $10,000, and turn your $399 Apple Watch Sport into the Gold variant.

In his video, Neistat takes a Apple Watch Sport, strips off the bands, and wraps the dial with scotch tape. He then cuts of the edges that he wants to convert into gold. He takes a simple gold spray can and sprays it all over the Apple Watch Sport dial generously. After removing the tape, and snapping the bands together, the Apple Watch Sport indeed looks like a cheap knock-off of the Gold variant.

For the millions out there who love hacks, this one’s a genius, albeit temporary. It definitely does not look like the premium Gold variant, but from far-off you could fool some people.
Apple has now begun shipping the Apple Watch to its customers in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the US. First buyers have been showing off their brand new Apple Watches and you can check out some of the first elated customers here.
